Watch: Thirteen new videos mark the Digital HD release of Exodus: Gods and Kings

Watch: Thirteen new videos mark the Digital HD release of Exodus: Gods and Kings March 3, 2015


Exodus: Gods and Kings came out on Digital HD today, and the studio has revamped its official website so that it now features three new image galleries and several new videos on the making of the film. At least three other websites have posted new video clips to mark the film’s digital release, too. Check ’em all out below the jump.

The film won’t come out on Blu-Ray for another two weeks, but if you want to watch it in the comfort of your home right now, you can download it through all the usual streaming services listed here. I can’t access some of those services myself, because I don’t live in the United States, but as far as I can tell, only two of them provide bonus features in addition to the movie proper: Xbox Video, which promises “deleted and extended scenes, featurettes and image galleries,” and iTunes, which has most of the bonus features from the deluxe Blu-Ray, including an audio commentary by Ridley Scott and Jeffrey Caine, a 23-minute featurette on ‘The Lawgiver’s Legacy: Moses Throughout History’, ‘Deleted and Extended Scenes’, ‘Enhancement Pods’ and ‘The Gods and Kings Archive’. (The only bonus features that don’t seem to be included are the trivia track, the promotional featurettes, and possibly the image galleries.)

In the meantime, the movie’s official website now features several new making-of videos, as well as concept art and storyboards for the opening battle scene, the plague sequences and the climactic tsunami. You can watch the videos below:

‘Exploring the Characters’, in which Ridley Scott gives an opinion on the historicity of Moses and we get a brief look at the mummified remains of the actual Ramses:

‘Ramses Creating the Confrontation’, in which Joel Edgerton describes how he got ready for the scene where Ramses almost chops off Miriam’s arm:

‘Building the Tools of War’:

‘Setting the Scene for Battle’:

‘Choosing the Locations’:

‘Constructing Sets for an Epic’:

‘Dressing Ancient Egypt’:

‘Bringing Hail to Life’:

‘Ridley Discusses the Wave’:

At least three other sites posted exclusive behind-the-scenes video clips today.

USA Today posted this clip of Christian Bale discussing how he tried to keep things light on the set of this otherwise intense film:

IGN posted this four-minute featurette on the making of the hailstorm:
